Unlike the pathetic protagonists of many a smart dumb comedy, Corky never becomes sympathetic, and without this fundamental irony the movie doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Stick with the website.

Ever hear about the guy who liked to pummel his head with a sledgehammer, because it felt so good when he stopped? Maybe the same fellow would appreciate Corky Romano.

It's depressing enough to sit through an unfunny comedy, but it's worse to watch Falk, Penn and Berg having to earn a living like this.
October 12, 2001
Much too tired and mean-spirited to be funny.
October 12, 2001
It's strictly for someone looking for a goof-off.
October 12, 2001
Stands out as the stiff of the season, a comedy that isn't remotely as funny as its daft and Duran Duranny TV ads would have us hope.
October 12, 2001
That the acting is abysmal ... is beside the point. No one could make this stuff work.
October 12, 2001
Almost from the beginning, you're jarred by lame gags that fall horribly, embarrassingly flat.
October 12, 2001
A crushingly conventional mob comedy that also borrows more than a few pages from the Adam Sandler playbook.
October 12, 2001
With a great many contemporary comedies mistaking excess for invention and hyperactivity for dynamism, Corky Romano displays genuine heart.
October 12, 2001
This isn't just bad. It's an abject failure whose lame nuttiness evokes bad dinner theater more than a major studio movie.
October 12, 2001
A wobbly cinematic vehicle.
October 12, 2001
[Kattan] rewards us with the usual comic ratio -- a mild chuckle or two in 90 minutes or so.
October 12, 2001
Introduces this sissy boy of a hero and proceeds to bland out everything that's ridiculous about him.
October 12, 2001
Kattan is still a funny guy, but with movies as stupid as Corky Romano, his future as a movie star seems sketchy at best.
October 12, 2001
The concept is exhausted, the ideas are tired, the physical gags are routine, the story is labored, the actors look like they can barely contain their doubts about the project.
October 12, 2001
Can best be described as 86 minutes of nonstop forgettableness.
October 11, 2001
Frankly, there wouldn't have been enough shtick here to warrant an SNL skit.
